The author writes an excellent magical , adventure, mystery novel. It is a novel that contains magic, secrets, adventures and surprises. I enjoyed how the characters traveled to different worlds when needed. I admired all of the characters as they stayed true to themselves wither for good or evil. As I read it, I did discover the price of magic is.

I enjoyed this, and look forward to reading any future volumes. Good world-building, plot, and characters with whom one can sympathise. My only quibble is the amount of back-story the reader needs to be aware of to fully appreciate the book. Weaving this into his storyline, Neale sometimes lets the plot sag a little while the reader catches up. This, however, is a minor detraction from an otherwise accomplished piece of work.

This is actually the second book in the series which I was not aware of. As I have not read the first book, there are some references which I did not get. But having said that, this book can be read without reading the first one. The book has a little of magic, action, adventure and mystery all added to make it a fun middle grade novel to read.
